In late 2015, JBG unveiled a design by ODA Architecture for a 420ish-unit residential building on Half Street immediately north of Nationals Park. The project is anticipated to have both condos and rental units, along with 65,000 square feet of retail on two floors, and could get underway in late 2016, with delivery late in 2018. This rendering depicts the corner of Half and N Streets, SE, looking to the northwest. (Imagine you are standing at the ticket booths on Half Street looking toward downtown.)
Dec. 10, 2017 - At the end of 2017, West Half's construction reached street level, with work underway on the first above-ground columns.
April 3, 2017 - New fence signage advertising the project's official web site at WestHalf.com.
January 2006 - The northwest corner of Half and N, the same as the above rendering, but back when it was home to the Good and Plenty Carry Out. And the empty lot seen between the two rowhouses has a bit of history.
October 22, 2017 - The same location, where outdoor bar The Bullpen opened in 2009 and ran for three seasons before being folded into the Fairgrounds in 2012. Click to see all available photos of this location.
A nighttime view from not quite mid-block on Half Street, the view one would have when walking to Nats Park from the Metro station. (click to enlarge)
Aug. 12, 2006 - Looking north on Van Street from Half Street, the same angle as the above-right rendering, back in 2006. This land was originally purchsed by Monument Realty in 2005, and then bought by Akridge in 2008.
August 5, 2017 - The same location, in its current state.  Click to see all available photos of this location.

The view southward down Half Street from about mid-block in 2007, the same angle as the above-right rendering. Metro's Southeastern Bus Garage occupied this block until it closed in 2008 and was demolished in 2009. Construction of the ballpark is visible at the end of the street.
The same general angle, as it looked in 2015 with the Fairgrounds still in full flower.
A look at the residential building Akridge had planned for this southern end of the block, before it sold the property to JBG in 2015.
Another rendering from the Akridge era, showing at left the office building it had planned where the northern end of JBG's residential building will now be. At right is an earlier version of the still-planned office building at 25 M Street, now being developed by Brandywine REIT with Akridge.
